Would appreciate some thoughts on the fit and also on hemming them.

Thanks.


The jeans look good. I would hem as I think that leg looks cleaner. All in all, they're good though. Given your build, I don't think you'd want them any tighter.

They've been worn a few months already, so they stretched out to max. I'm clearly in between a 34 and 36 in waist, but problem with 34 is the lower rise which doesn't fit my rear smile.gif

Ideally, they would be slimmer along the entire leg, but the 34 might be too tight and the new 36 from, what I know, is only tighter from knee down

Yeah, muscular build for sure, I play a lot of sports so my quads and calfs are pretty big. The only jeans that look cleaner are those that have a lot of stretch in them.

The only thing for those that I could still do is maybe to taper them a bit more above knee, but not sure if that's a good idea.

@blue2007 ahhh in that case man I think your good

My jacket came in. Some thoughts on it.

No big box shipping or dust bag / hanger.
It's made in the USA for those that care.

Color is really what I wanted, love oak in general.
Material is something I never felt or seen before. It's like a starched shirt but the jacket can be molded anyway you want. You can literally scrunch the fabric and it stays put. There will be no puffing on it. You can mold it to your body however you want.

Some quick pics. I'll have fit pics later

I wouldn't taper them. They look good and it's very symmetric to your torso (that I can see). Further tapering below the knee is going to make you look more top heavy.

Has anyone had success contacting CNCPTS? I placed an order on August 24th and tracking still says en route to DHL Distribution Center.

JE denim experts. Loving my springs but I think the lower block can use some cleaning up. Do y'all think a taper would do the trick? There is excess fabric by the ankles that I can pull. The calves are basically skin tight already.

How big are your feet? Further Taper depends on your feet size

I'll have no issues with putting my foot through the hem. How would you guys taper this if calves are already fitted? Leave knees but hard taper at calves down? Thinking of doing 5.25" hem.

Yea, if I don't get a response by tomorrow I'm just going to file a PayPal claim.

I ordered the 1/2 zip on Sunday and it was in pre shipment for 3 days and finally says expected delivery tomorrow. I guess I am one of the few lucky ones. They are notorious for poor customer service and being hard to reach but try spamming them on Twitter, I see the occasional response to customer issues

Got it, makes sense.

Should I even think a bit a slight taper below the calfs? I believe someone else asked that as well. Or just the hem and move on.
